Dear Friends and Colleagues in the San Francisco Bay Area,

Please help us welcome Federal Trade Commissioner Julie Brill to a unique,
downtown San Francisco townhall-style event at
Hattery<>on Wednesday, September 19.

Commissioner Julie Brill <> is
visiting the West Coast to engage developers, startups, consumers and
counsels for input on the issues that the Federal Trade Commission is
addressing in the near and long term. Come and ask questions and provide
feedback on the issues that Ms. Brill is working on including: consumer
privacy (kids, mobile, financial), advertising rules, financial fraud & ID
theft, facial recognition, cybersecurity and more. This San Francisco event
will duplicate the State of the Net West event townhall meeting with
Commissioner Brill at Santa Clara Law School on Thursday morning [more
details <>].

The FTC is the leading U.S. agency dealing with online privacy, security
and consumer protection. Recently the FTC entered into privacy consent
orders with Google, Facebook and Twitter. Just last month the FTC assessed
a record fine against Google for alleged privacy violations. Facebook
recently settled charges with the Commission over its privacy policy. Just
this year the FTC called for legislation to regulate data brokers its
"Report on Protecting Consumer Privacy." It is actively working on privacy
in the mobile space and so-called "Do Not Track" browser implementations.
It recently proposed new privacy rules for children.

We look forward to welcoming Commissioner Brill to San Francisco, and also
hearing your views on these issues and others.
